The success of any training program can be found in the day-to-day operations. If you keep your horse in training with us, here is what you can expect:

Lessons/Training: Our training program includes lessons and training rides, catered specifically to the goals of each horse and rider. To learn more about our training philosophy, click here.

Routine: All of our horses are in full training, and have a schedule tailored specifically to their needs and the needs of their riders. Horses are creatures of habit, and they gain confidence and trust when we establish feeding, riding, and care programs that they understand and look forward to.

Regular Turnout: We are strong believers that horses should live as nature intended, spending ample time walking, foraging, and basking in the sun. 

Treadmill: Our equine athletes perform set programs on our treadmill to help complement their unique fitness programs. Motion is lotion for the joints, so we keep our horses moving!

Treatments: We have serval sports treatments in our program, including our Equine Vita Floor, Game Ready icing systems, magnetic blankets, etc. These are used as needed to keep our horses feeling their best.

Supervised Care: Our staff looks over each horse multiple times a day to check for any heat, swelling, cuts, etc. Prevention is key, but a good program will catch ailments early, and treat them quickly and efficiently, to keep you getting as many good rides as possible on a happy, healthy horse. In addition, we like to teach our clients how to manage their horses safely and correctly, so we provide horse care training along the way to help develop confident, independent equestrians.

Grain/Supplements: In addition to the quality grass hay and alfalfa fed twice a day by our staff, we also feed grain and nutritional supplements. Our staff and team veterinarian will help come up with the perfect nutrition program for your horse, based on their performance level and work load.
